IMGP7856 Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

I have never been to this national park, but of course, I know of it.  On this date in 1890, Sequoia National Park was established.  It included the areas of the Sierra Nevada mountains and around the San Joaquin Valley.  It was America’s second national park.

      I honestly read that comment wrong. At first I thought you meant you were there when it became a national park! LOL!
